    Any defense of God’s Word, is dismissed by most people, because they say “minor changes don’t make any difference”.

    With most things in life this is true, but we are talking about the Word of God:
    (Where changing even one word can make a big difference.)
    --------------------------------------------------
    Here is a good example......
    Galatians 3:16
    “Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.”


    God made a promise to Abraham and his seed(those who are in Christ), and used specific words to convey this promise.......
    Genesis 17:7
    “And I will establish my covenant between me and thee and thy seed after thee in their generations for an everlasting covenant, to be a God unto thee, and to thy seed after thee.”


    But Modern versions of the English Bible, feel free to change “the words” willy nilly, and changed Genesis 17:7, to the point that this promise loses it true meaning.
    --------------------------------------------------
    All of us are being indoctrinated, to believe a perfect Bible does not exist.

    This is a lie, intended to destroy the Churches foundation!

    A perfect translation does not exist.

    No,it's the truth. If you tout the KJV as being perfect then you will only prove that your contention is utterly false.

    Christ is the foundation of the Church --and as the KJV renders it --even the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.

    If....the lie, that “A perfect translation does not exist” were true, than no Christian could receive any accurate instruction or correction from their Bible......
    2 Timothy 3:16-17
    V.16 All scripture [is] given by inspiration of God, and [is] profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
    V.17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

    --------------------------------------------------
    As for the Church’s foundation; How can any of us trust that we know the true Christ, if we can’t trust God’s Word, that tells us about Him.

    Here we go round...

    On second thought, let's not.
